W.B. Yeats: No Country for Old Men


W.B. Yeats - No Country For Old Men by DemonPreyer

Som RTÉ skriver om programmet:
Perhaps Yeats' best known poetry is his early work, poems we all know and love: The Lake Isle of Innisfree, When You Are Old and Easter 1916. However, it is now acknowledged that perhaps Yeats' greatest poems followed his Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923, when Yeats' life, works and loves had taken a very different direction - and not one that the founding fathers of the nascent Irish nation might have approved of. The film will explore Yeats' complicated - and often unconventional - relationships with women in his latter years and how those relationships gave rise, ultimately, to an unexpected late blossoming of his poetry.
